Further to my previous blog about our trip to the Royal Show, this is just a quick little addition which I've put up for those who like looking at beaded things. I have recently been following the lovely work of Dawnetta, a facebook friend who does some beautiful floral beadwork.
Once upon a time, I would probably not have given such things a second glance but after looking at Dawnetta's work I paid a little more attention to some beaded items on display in the craft hall.
I took a few snaps of some dolls which had had beaded clothes made for them. The show is a place where hobbyists can exhibit their work and hopefully win a first, second or third prize. I cannot image how long it must take to make some of these things - I don't think I would have the patience!

|Can't image how much time and patience it took to make these!|
|A few other beaded items which were in a different category. I rather Liked the picture in the frame.|

If you enjoyed looking at this and want to look at more beadwork, Dawnettas facebook page is at http://www.facebook.com/pages/MysteryJoy-Russo-Studios/124382540959241 and her Artfire artisan studio is at http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/studio/MysteryJoyRusso_Studios
Well that's it for the beads. If you are going to the show the craft hall is well worth checking out.
Have a great day.
